Tasting sessions

Whether as part of our master class or as stand alone sessions, Vault's tasting sessions can open up a whole new world for you. Discover, why despite being termed as 'tasting' sessions, your tastebuds are only of secondary importance when it comes to the sensory evaluation of any fine spirits be it whisky, cognac, gin or tequila. Or why you might want to not reach out for your perfume on the day of the tasting session.

Did you know that though there are only five primary tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami), yet there are 32 primary aromas from which we build our sensory universe. And from therein, springs an entire new vocabulary of fine spirit tasting - winey, woody, sulphury, oaky, feinty, peaty, floral, fruity, cereal. So come, attend a Vault tasting session and expand your knowledge about the infinite world of fine spirits.

Vault can also arrange personalised tasting sessions centred around your particular area of interest at your home, office or venue of your choice. And if you wish for a higher, more sublime level of tasting, why not consider inviting one of our curators - Charles MacLean, Dave Broom, Tomas Estes for an exclusive session that can open a whole new world of fine spirits experiences!

PERSONALISED TASTING EXPERIENCES:

Personalised Tasting Experiences: Lasting up to an hour and a half, our intimate tasting sessions are a world apart from de rigueur. Easygoing, humorous, peppered with interesting anecdotes and full of surprises; you and your guests will find yourselves sharing your own fine spirits experiences with our founder Keshav Prakash and his team as they gently but deftly lead you on the journey of discovering the hidden stories in each bottle poured into your glass. Having travelled the world many times over in search of the finest spirits, Keshav's nose is formidable, his smile is disarming while his eye for detail is legendary.

Suffice to say, every Vault tasting session that you book will have involved a detailed discussion on your preferences, a pre-visit to your home/office/venue to check out the optimal lighting, seating arrangement and suggestions on food pairing should you wish to serve short eats too. On the day of the tasting session, we will arrive with everything that is needed to transport you and your guests to a magical realm - the appropriate glassware, palate cleansers and of course the fine spirits!

Given below is a list of the tasting experiences we can curate for you. Go through them. We trust you will find one that resonates with you. And should you be tempted to gift our Personalised Tasting Experiences for your friend's birthday or wedding anniversary or for a reunion, we can also customise a tasting experience best suited to the occasion.

Please call or e-mail our Concierge to help you choose a tasting experience.

All Experience prices include the cost of one full bottle of each of spirits mentioned (the remaining is yours to keep). We suggest the group size be not more than 12 members. Spirits will be supplied by Vault's select retailers.
